Subject connection rejected by remote interface
Author phil_henningsen
I have just installed FirebirdCS- on a new VMware
virtual machine using SuSE 9.2. I've done this sucessfully a few
times before. For the life of me, I cannot connect via a remote server.

linux:/home/phil # /opt/firebird/bin/isql

SQL> connect '/home/zdk/data/TA_REPORTS.GDB';

linux:/home/phil # netstat -an | grep 3050

Firewalls are "proper".

From a remote machine, I *can* "telnet <ip_addr> 3050"

Any clue as to what *else* is going on?

Many thanks!
